It all starts as pretend…
My best friend, and one of the most powerful men in New York, needs my help.
Our first kiss is unexpected—but it still makes my skin sizzle, my knees go weak.
The next one is in front of his tight-knit family. We have to be convincing. But it’s so wicked hot, it almost fools me too.
On our first night together, he tells me that I have to keep us both in check, because he doesn’t know how to keep the lines from blurring…
He touches me like I’m precious, and holds me close… barely stopping his fingers from pushing down the straps of my dress…
Our second night is sexy as hell. Intense. Alluring. How am I supposed to not fall in love?
You’re the One by Layla Hagen is a fun friends to lovers romance with a fake relationship to boot. Hagen is a new to me author and I enjoyed her writing style!
Hunter and Josie are adorable. There is so much chemistry between them; they have been friends since high school. Hunter has an issue with his visa though and his solution is to get married. Who better to marry for a green card than his BFF? Also, Josie? She’s a lawyer.
I loved the set up of this plot. Overall, the story was fun and light. It’s perfect for readers who want something ‘easy’ on their emotions. Hunter and Josie are both really lovable characters. There is some light angst because they start falling for each other and are unsure if the feelings are reciprocated. Their families are nice secondary characters that help these two figure out their new life! There are some great swoon moments that I really appreciated as well. You’re the One is a delightful romance that will leave you with all the happy feels!
